Why is the cross foolishness to those who reject it? It points them out as sinners that wounds their pride and rejects their goodness they think is good enough for salvation. It also exalts God as supreme over all, needed by all for forgiveness of all sins, which is another strike against the pride of man. Prideful man believes Satan’s lie that he can be like God. The cross says NO WAY, God is sinless, man a sinner! We who recognize the truth of the cross have placed our faith alone in it and the one who died upon it, Jesus Christ, and the work that He accomplished as , not only necessary, BUT ENOUGH FOREVER TO SAVE!! I love a song by a group called The Legacy Five,” I Trust The Cross”. To the cross of Christ my sins were hammered, His body bore the brunt of ALL my shame, the wooden beams have long since vanished, but there’s redemption there just the same. For this sin there is sweet forgiveness and for the broken healing can be found and lonely hearts can find a refuge and captive souls can be unbound. There is no greater true, no more certain absolute than the cross that Jesus bore for me and you.
Chorus: I trust the cross, I trust the cross, in times like this the world can seem like there’s no refuge for the lost but I believe in the precious blood that Cavalry cost,Oh, Hallelujah, Oh, Hallelujah, Oh, Hallelujah!! I trust the cross!! If you’ve never considered what took place on that cross, realize that it was done for you out of love for you so you could be forgiven forever for sins that separated you from God and heaven. It took away the eternal punishment of your sins in a place called Hell, prepared for the devil and his angels, Matthew 25:41. God put His Only Son on the cross to give His life in exchange for yours so you could be saved from Hell. If you will simply believe that is enough, God will give you eternal life as a gift because of what was finished on the cross. Will you believe it and be saved? John 6:47,” Verily, Verily, I say to you, He that believes on me HAS everlasting life”. Don’t be one of the foolish ones, believe and be saved today!! #foolishness #spiritualfoolishness #sinfulpride #shedbloodforyou
